    First thing that comes to mind is your computer specs. What kind of system are you running?

    Transparent/translucent textures don't block vis, perhaps you have leaked?

    1. CSS is slightly applicable to tf2maps forum.
    2. Glass maps are gimmick.
    3. Ep1 hammer always had this issue. So relax and wait.
    4. The question was about lags in hammer.

    You've made a map entirely of glass. It isn't unreasonable it will lag both in and out of hammer.
